[haiku-development] Discussing GSoC 2015 Ideas (Tiger Kid1)

13 min 51 sec ago
Hi! I was going through the Ideas page for GSoC 2015 and I finda couple of them interesting. But I have some questions regarding them. First off, the Modular Edit View task (). Is this about writing a Pe-like code-editor, or simply adding functionality the its edit view? Should it be something like Notepad++ or gedit? Second, regarding the graphical project manager tool (), how should this IDE be different/similar to Paladin. Can the code be re-used? ...

[haiku-development] BPrivate::HashSet GetHashCode() = HasValue() (John Scipione)

13 min 51 sec ago
This is mostly directed at Ingo I think, I was playing with HashSets. Yesterday I was trying to use a BPrivate::HashSet as found in headers/private/shared/HashSet.h with a BString as a key. However, when I added a BString to the HashSet it tries to call BString.GetHashCode() and complained that BString doesn't have that method. BString does however have a HashValue() method, and I've noticed that ...

Large parts of the BeOS/Haiku API suck, are horribly incomplete, or could use some dusting off e.g. wrt. newer C++ standards. Looking at the progress of our project in the past, it should be clear that we simply don't have the man power to do that. Therefore evaluating alternatives is a very sensible thing to do. ...

Thanks Adrien! This is very useful. I will also get started with solving easy bugs and hope to understand the codebase with it.

[haiku-development] Reset my Trac passport? (Michael Crawford)

13 min 52 sec ago
Long Time No See, I'd like to get back into Haiku development after a long hiatus. I have a few tickets in Trac under the account MichaelCrawford. I have both forgotten my Trac password, and due to cash flow problems, lost a whole bunch of domain names. Quite likely I lost the domain for the password with which I originally registered. Would someone be willing to reset my password so I can keep using the ...

[haiku-development] Re: New BMediaRecorder class (Barrett)

13 min 52 sec ago
Hello, If I remember right you mentioned that you might change BMediaRecorder to derive from BMediaFilter once that's written? This is an option i'm seriously evaluating, what is certain is that the BMediaNode behind will be shared as you can safely declare it being only a BBufferProducer even if it can also work as consumer, so the media_server ...

A third class to complete the set i've think of is BMediaFilter which i plan to use as the SoundRecorder core being a mixed producer/consumer. The general idea is to make more accessible the media kit features as the nodes are pretty complex. If I remember right you mentioned that you might change BMediaRecorder to derive from BMediaFilter once that's written? If so I'll wait until that after to make it public, as that's likely to entail a few API and ...
